The Extra Mile: One Woman’s Personal Journey to Ultra-running Greatness
Review: (Required): 

Those who’d rather go for a run before breakfast, or who want to know why anyone
would, can find some insight here. Pam Reed is an ultra-runner, one of those who run
races of 100+ miles. After such a run, in the dessert, she will eat, sleep, wake up
and – yes, you guessed it – go for a little run, a short one with a friend, maybe 4
or 5 miles. Whether you’re a marathoner or a couch potato, you will be amazed by
this woman’s drive.

A Fan’s Notes: A Fictional Memoir
Review: (Required): 

This book, a cult classic written in 1968, is an honest and intelligent account
of the life of a lonely, mentally ill, alcoholic obsessed with football and Frank
Gifford, the NY Giants running back. While this may sound like Charles Bukowski, it
is more thoughtful and human. The book is at times hilarious, at times angry and
always deeply sad. But somehow it manages to avoid being depressing. You may be
surprised at how much you have to learn from someone in Exley's shoes.
